Carb-free quick snacks – Tuna salad pickle stackers

Tuna Pickle Stacker

Tuna Pickle Stacker

I seemed to have slipped back into the carb-free eating routine without much difficulty this time – only one day of headaches which were cured by strong coffee – but the kiddo is having a little more difficulty. One afternoon she needed food, and I had no cooked meat handy for a quick snack, so I made these for her. At first she turned up her nose at the idea, until she saw them and said, “Oh, they’re adorable. You need to take a picture and post them on your blog.” So here it is.

Quick, quick tuna salad pickle stackers.

  • 1 can chunk tuna in water – drained
  • Mayo – just enough to moisten the tuna
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 large Vlasic pickles, cut into thick slices (Or any other sugar-free pickle sliced)
  • banana pepper slices for a little more kick
  • cheese – any variety of hard cheese – sliced then cut into squares.
  1. Drain tuna and put it in a bowl, add mayo, green onions and pepper to taste.
  2. Lay pickle slices out in a single layer on a plate
  3. Spoon tuna salad onto the pickle slices as much or little as you want.
  4. Top with a square of cheese and a banana pepper slice.

Enjoy a snack that only takes 5 minutes to make! No carbs and great for when you’re starving. Gives you protein and a little veggie.

My original idea, because I thought I had some sliced pickles on hand, was to make little sandwiches with the pickles, but since I cut the Vlasic pickles thick, only one layer was needed.
